Sounds like he had a rope? Must've been roped solo or something?

Ugh. That gives a slightly more sinister perspective to the hive near the top of Subpoena at Black Ians...

The bee population in the US has cross-bred with strains from Africa and led to more aggressive strains in recent years - it's possible we'll see more reports like this.

Not that this is dissuading me from wanting to put a hive on my roof at home...

Which wasn't there a few weeks ago for anyone thinking of climbing it.

Really? That's news, they were there earlier this summer. I hope they moved on of their own accord.

I double checked my logbook and I was there mid-April. Given the comb has been almost completely removed, I doubt it the left of their own accord; they seem to love that spot and have regularly re-colonised it.

I confirm that, I was there a month and half ago and no sign of bees.
